Overview

On the Microsoft MCPD / MCTS .NET 4 Windows Developer course, you'll learn about the new features of the .NET platform:

  • Developing Data Access Solutions with Microsoft Visual Studio 2010
  • Developing Windows Applications with Microsoft Visual Studio 2010
  • Developing Windows Communication Foundation Solutions with Microsoft Visual Studio 2010

You will be tested on the following exams:

  • Exam 70-513 - TS: Windows Communication Foundation Development with Microsoft .NET Framework 4
  • Exam 70-516 - TS: Accessing Data with Microsoft .NET Framework 4
  • Exam 70-511 - TS: Windows Applications Development with Microsoft .NET Framework 4
  • Exam 70-518 - Pro: Designing and Developing Windows Applications Using Microsoft .NET Framework 4

Why .Net 4.0?

Microsoft is positioning Visual Studio 2010 as its tool platform to support Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2, Azure, SQL Server, Office 2010 and SharePoint 2010. The suite includes new drag and drop bindings for Silverlight and Windows Presentation Foundation; interoperability with the ASP.Net model view controller (MVC), better multicore support and UML support.

Below is a detailed list of new enhancements:

Visual Studio 2010

  • Code Snippets
  • New Profiles
  • Generate from Usage
  • Multi-Trageting
  • Multi-Monitor
  • Code Navigation in Class Files
  • IntelliSense Improvements
  • Enable Persisted Selection
  • Add Reference Dialog
  • Dynamic Lookup

C#

  • Optional Parameters in C#
  • Named Parameters in C#

ASP.NET 4.0

  • Compressing Session Values
  • Web.Config Transformation
  • URL Routing
  • Meta Tags
  • Generating Client IDs
  • Permanent Redirects
  • New Browser Definitions
  • New Publishing Project Interface

WCF 4.0

  • Simple Configuration

Windows Applications 4.0

  • Inclusion of WPF in the Windows Applications Exam

ADO.NET 4.0

  • Foreign Keys in the Conceptual Model
  • Self-Tracking Entities for N-Tier Application Development
  • New Methods for N-Tier Application Development
  • EntityDataSource Support for the QueryExtender Control
  • Testability with IObjectSet
  • Direct Execution of Store Commands
  • Persistence-Ignorant Objects
  • Lazy Loading of Related Objects
  • Functions in LINQ to Entities Queries
  • OrderBy Improvements in LINQ to Entities
  • Customized Object-Layer Code Generation
  • Model-First Support
  • Complex Type Support
  • Improved Model Browser Functionality

You will get answers to these questions:

  • How is ASP.NET MVC different from building WebForms-based web applications?
  • How does Entity Framework 4.0 help me build n-tier applications?

You will learn how to:

  • Decouple your entity model from the data using Plain Old CLR Objects (POCOs).
  • Write classes that can track changes to their own state for n-tier development with Entity Framework.
  • Simplify your service deployment with zero config services with WCF 4.0.
  • Write rich web applications that are simpler to unit test.
  • Create REST based services based on the ASP.NET infrastructure

Benefits

Other accelerated training providers rely heavily on lecture and independent self-testing and study.

Effective technical instruction must be highly varied and interactive to keep attention levels high, promote camaraderie and teamwork between the students and instructor, and solidify knowledge through hands-on learning.

Firebrand Training provides instruction to meet every learning need:

  • Intensive group instruction
  • One-on-one instruction attention
  • Hands-on labs
  • Lab partner and group exercises
  • Question and answer drills
  • Independent study

This information has been provided as a helpful tool for candidates considering training. Courses that include certification come with a certification guarantee. Pass first time or train again for free (just pay for accommodation and exams on your return). We do not make any guarantees about personal successes or benefits of obtaining certification. Benefits of certification determined through studies do not guarantee any particular personal successes.
